    Memory Leak in NAVAPSVC.EXE

    Has anyone else had a problem with this service, the Symantec Auto-Protect service? It's taken some diligent looking, but I've discovered a memory leak related to file access - and a paged pool leak at that which resulted in hard shutdowns, no blue screen, no warning.

    I don't know if this exists on Windows 2000; I use that at the office exclusively and have not seen this particular problem. I'm searching for ideas on how to isolate the cause further....is something causing it not to release memory properly, etc... <img src=/S/mad.gif border=0 alt=mad width=15 height=15> <img src=/S/mad.gif border=0 alt=mad width=15 height=15>

    Ummmm, no thanks. XP's memory management is just fine - programs like this are more trouble than value in my experience. Since NAVAPSVC runs in protected memory space, something like this can't touch it anyway.

    For now I'm working around it by running a simple BAT file that restarts the service once every six hours. The scheduler kicks it off. A kludge, surely, but until I can come up with something better....
